English term or phrase: Bumper chenille
In dictionaries, one finds bumper yarn = fil de fourrure. Can one say chenille de fourrure ou chenille à fil de fourrure or something else?
Any hints or explanations welcome

Fil ciré /


Explanation:
My dictionaries do not agree on the word chenille, which in French this word is NOT a yarn. But a "larve".

Bumper has a familiar meaning of "cirer"
However, not knowing the entire sentence....


Good luck.
